In everything but name this is a TR7, British Leyland raced these themselves, hence this car being in this colour. Years ago Scalextric had these one in this colour and one in red.
These cars were fitted with the Rover V8 unit, and TR8 were mostly sold in the States.
LVC 367V, Triumph, North Wales.
